Dr. Courtney Smither grew up on a farm in southern Alberta, Canada and has been living in the Portland/Vancouver area since 2010. She enjoys spending time camping, fishing, curling, riding horses and doing home improvement projects with her husband. Of course, chiropractic is a huge part of Dr. Courtney's life, as it has been since she was about 8 years old. As a child, her hard working father suffered from chronic lower back pain. He started seeing a chiropractor while he was on a waiting list for low back surgery. He ended up not needing the surgery and was taken off the wait list! Since then, Dr. Courtney and her entire family have been seeing a chiropractor regularly to maintain and optimize their health. Helping to better the health and happiness of the community, without drugs or surgery, has already proven to be the most rewarding thing she has ever done.
